DIY Rosemary Peace Wreath

DIY Rosemary & Eucalyptus Peace Wreath

As I was scrolling through Pinterest looking for Christmas decoration inspiration I saw so many beautiful DIY wreaths. I was tempted to try one of these beautiful wreathes like the one below.

However|, these wreathes were starting to clog up my feed, so I figured they were not very original. I then stubbled upon a few peace wreathes which inspired me to make my own. 

This Rosemary and Eucalyptus Wreath is the easiest thing to make! It only took me about 10 minutes. I choose to use Rosemary, because I have loads of it in my backyard, but you could use trimmings from a Christmas Tree as well. Both will be sure to make your home smell Amazing! You can put this wreath on your front door, or hang in on a wall inside your home like I did. 

What you will need:

  1. Rosemary

  2. Eucalyptus

  3. Some kind of ring. I used this one because I originally intended to make a wreath like the one pictured above, but you could also use something like this which might actually work better.

  4. Floral Wire - I used a similar grey wire that I had left over from FIDM, but the green floral wire is ideal.

  5. Twine

How to Make it:

  1. 1) Wrap wire around the ring, to form a peace sign.

  2. 2) Cut Rosemary to fit around the ring.

  3. Place Rosemary around the wring so that no metal is showing.

  4. Start wrapping the wire around the rosemary, so that it is secured tightly. I wrapped it about every half inch.

  5. Once the rosemary is covering the wreath, add desired amount of eucalyptus and secure with wire the same way.

  6. Wrap the twine around the top of the wreath. Leaving a long string at each end so that you can hang the wreath.
